Ritz-Carlton hotel offers new wine purchase program

Hidden Wine will offer a large selection of European and American wines, as well as sparkling wines and Champagnes.

The Ritz-Carlton in Charlotte, N.C., offers a new way hotel guests and area residents to purchase wines for affordable enjoyment directly at the hotel or at another location.

The Ritz-Carlton guests can take Hidden Wine purchases to their guestrooms, to another destination, or to the hotel Lobby Lounge, where the wine can be professionally served. Lobby Lounge service of wines purchased at Hidden Wine is also available to local residents.

Hidden Wine will offer a large selection of European and American wines, as well as sparkling wines and Champagnes. A further offering will focus on organic, biodynamic and small-batch labels, while a select retail offering will also present wines available only at this boutique prior to broader release in the region. None of the wines sold by Hidden Wine will be available for purchase at other dining outlets at The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte.

As an added service, and especially for those purchasers wishing to dine outside the hotel, Hidden Wine will provide an in-store listing of local restaurants that permit guests to bring in their own wine. The list will include related corkage fees associated with each dining establishment.
